The Iowa Veterans Home encourages visitors. Visiting hours are posted throughout the facility; however, the main doors are locked at 11:00 p.m. Special arrangements for late visitors can be made with administrative approval.
Visitors are expected to respect the privacy of all residents and the rules of IVH. There are no age restrictions for visitors; however, children 12 years and under must be accompanied by parents or a responsible adult and should be supervised while visiting. Some visitors may stay overnight. IVH provides two kitchen/dining room areas for family meals. Everything but the food is provided. The Kopper Kettle, where visitors can cook their own meals, is located between the Gift Shop and Creative Clayworks on the main floor of the Malloy Building. There is a kitchen-dining room area in the Heinz Hall recreation room. To reserve either of these areas, residents need to contact their Recreation Therapist.
